(upcoming) Version 0.3:
TODO:
# bugfix: user selection in the list gets lost during an update which could lead to wrong entries in the queue
# update: include a "remove from the list" button in the queue
# bugfix: fix the bug with unicode in the parser (fromUtf8() doesn't work; or does it?)
# bugfix (NEW): showsToday prints stuff which comes from the rememberView icons. methode1: implement the icons; methode2: remove it
DONE:
# update: autoLoader uses btjunkie now and checks torrents for community-validation
# update: add a checkbox in the settings which sets an autostart of the program under Linux & Windows
# bugfix: resize of showView doesn't work perfect under different window-managers (workaround in rememberview.cpp)
# update: added an autostart option in the settings-dialog
# update: add toolTips to the icons in showView
# bugfix: showview give a wrong minimumSizeHint if no icons are used => now minimumSizeHint check icons for validity
# update: include "serienjunkies.org" as alternative to the torrent-search for rapidshare loaders
# update: create an auto-torrent-downloader which loads the torrent and opens it with the system-standard-program (http://www.fulldls.com/ is up-to-date)
# update: parse the "next" and "previous" episodes of top-tv-shows
# update: improve the shown info with air-location, genre, and probably similar shows
# update: search for alternative images if they don't exist on the next-episodes.net site
# update: implement an information-loader which gathers show-summaries from the web (files, offline!)
# update: read the "top-tv-shows" to populate the list with popular shows which aren't played currently (e.g.: simpsons in summer)
# update: implement an image-loader and show a image of the selected show in the details-tab
# update: the UI includes now a new button to download a .torrent-file and a button which leads the user to a website with more info about the show (e.g. tv.com)
# update: removed the seconds-spinBox in the settings (who needed it anyways?)
# update: the name of the episode is shown in a tool tip
# update: the parser tries to make characters uppercase after some special characters (e.g. space)
# update: the reminder-list gets cleared every day => like a daily restart

Version 0.22
# improvement: first release of a 64bit binary for Linux
# improvement: closing from the sysTray closes the program for shure (even when the mainWindow isn't hidden)
(it was only minimized when the mainWindow wasn't hidden before)
# improvement/bugfix: the reminder got 2 extra functions (choosable from settings-dialog):
1) SysTrayMessage: remind the user as long (every update!) until he clicks the message
2) ReminderWidget: because the trayMessages could be prohibited an extra widget is created
# update: In my opinion the captions looked ugly. removed most of them (queue didn't even had one..)
# update: grouped all the options in the settings-dialog (e.g. proxy was grouped already)
# bugfix: The first "parse" command blocked the constructor; fixed it with a timer
(this was necessary to make the closing-stuff work!)


Version 0.21
# improvement: queue adjust its size to showView's size
# added a Portuguese (Brazil) translation from Márcio Moraes

Version 0.2
# added a link to "next-episode.net" in the About-dialog because we get our data from there
# improvement: made the translation-handling (plural-forms + default-translation) more effective
# improvement: sort shows on rememberview- & showstoday-dialog alphabetically
# improvement: added a gradient to showview
# bugfix: updater was locked forever if a network-error occured
# improvement: added a version-checking-functionality
# update: got rid of the locking-functuality with an improvement to the downloader
# improvement: showstoday looks now like rememberview/showview
# improvement: add a widget to select a date to showsToday to browse through the upcoming shows
# improvement: added a date-reset-button

Version 0.1
# first release which is able to perform the basic-things
